Proposed Submission Local Plan 2006-2028

Yeovil Sustainable Urban Extension

5.25 As discussed above, an urban extension to Yeovil of some 2,500 dwellings (with 1,565 dwellings within the plan period) and 11 ha of employment land (with 7ha within the plan period) is required to deliver the proposed level of growth for the town. This would equate to around 5,500 people living in the urban extension when complete. This is a lower scale of development than proposed in the draft Core Strategy related to a lower overall provision figure for the town and a higher and stronger evidenced estimate for development within the town.
